2nd GOP Debate
I watched more of the second debate than the first. As much as I'd like to pretend it was only because FOX handled the debate better than MSNBC, truth is it was as much a product of a weak slate of TV shows tonight.
I could say a bunch of stuff about the various candidates, but no one will remember much about this debate. The one thing that will be remembered about this debate is Rudy Giuliani won. He owes that perception to the lunacy uttered by Rep. Ron Paul of Texas. If Paul hadn't said the stupid stuff he said then Giuliani wouldn't have had the chance to jump down his throat with both feet. Basically, Paul claimed 9/11 was America's fault and Giuliani rightfully got indignant and in not so many words told Paul to shut up and go home. I'm not a supporter of Giuliani on most issues, but his stomping on Paul like an offending insect clearly will be the only thing remembered from this debate.
